"pax" is an industry abbreviation for "passenger", I have most frequently encountered its use by those working in the airline industry.

Sincere regards,

Pardon me betraying my ignorance, but I have been having trouble understanding the word **pax** as it has been appearing in this thread of posts.

To me, **pax** is a Latin noun meaning **peace,** and I think the little word is also used as the name for a small village in West Virginia.  Neither of those interpretations fit in this context.

What does **pax** mean in this thread?  Is it a misprint?
